And I’ll burn with the fire of ten million stars…

Starry sky

I woke up this morning with the lyrics from a song running through my head, and I found myself singing as I got through the morning routine of making breakfast and lunch for my son, and driving him to the bus… and those lyrics got me thinking.

You are infinite. You are wondrous. And so am I. We are each one an intrinsic, not to be missed part of the whole, each being completely unique… having completely unique talents to bring to the world, just like every star whose light we enjoy in the vast and wondrous night skies of our lives, even as their fire dies. 

These ideas are so relevant as both Venus and Mars are conjunct to Uranus in Aries in the sky right now! Let the fire ignite your spirit! Take action on your creative talents in the way that only you can! You are “the body electric!” (Google that phrase with Walt Whitman and Ray Bradbury.)

So I thought I’d share. Here they are, the lyrics to I Sing the Body Electric from the 1980’s film FAME.

I sing the body electric
I celebrate the me yet to come
I toast to my own reunion
When I become one with the sun

And I’ll look back on Venus
I’ll look back on Mars
And I’ll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

I sing the body electric
I glory in the glow of rebirth
Creating my own tomorrow
When I shall embody the earth

And I’ll serenade Venus
I’ll serenade Mars
And I’ll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

We are the emperors now and we are the czars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

I sing the body electric
I celebrate the me yet to come
I toast to my own reunion
When I become one with the sun

And I’ll look back on Venus
I’ll look back on Mars
And I’ll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

The song was written by Michael Gore, the Musical Supervisor on the film FAME. And it’s quite an inspirational story!
Here is that story on SongFacts.com: http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=25856

And here’s a tidbit for those who watch astrological charts fairly closely… I checked mine. At the time the song began playing in my head, Venus, Mars, Uranus, and the South Node of the Moon were all rising in the East in my location, conjuncting my natal Moon in Aries. And the Moon herself, in Scorpio, was conjuncting my Neptune. Voila!
